About the Grammar Module (Module I)
The Grammar Module includes 20 lessons and a Mastery Test. Each lesson includes a lesson video, leaning content, two practice exercises, and a graded test.
Each test can be attempted as many times as desired in order to improve the lesson grade.* Most students can complete the Grammar Module in 15 to 20 hours.
How EGUMPP is Graded
For the Grammar Module, the final grade is a combination of the 20 lesson grades and the mastery test grade.
The 20 lesson grades are averaged together and account for 50 percent of the final grade, and the mastery test grade accounts for the other 50 percent of the final grade.
* Until the mastery test is started, any lesson test may be attempted as many times as desired to improve a lesson grade. Once the mastery test is started, lesson grades can no longer be improved.
